I bought a forclosure.. I know it's been sitting for at least three years. The pool is 15 years old. It was black water when we first opened it. We have shocked it and vacuumed as much as we can without being able to see the bottom. We are now at a cloudy blue stage and seem to be stuck here. I'm thinking it's still an algae issue in the bottom of the pool. There are no trees around the pool so I haven't had much junk in the pool just algae basically so far ..
After going on vaca for 5 days and left the pump running with chlorine in the pool I came back it's still cloudy blue.. At least it didn't get worse..
yesterday Evening before bed I put 192 oz of bleach in the pool and waited about and hr and checked the chemicals
stabilizer - 50
Br bromine 1.3
Free Ch chlorine 0.6
Alk 11= 110
1 hr After 192 ml of bleach
i am am new to this pool thing. And think I am on the right track I just can't seem to get the cloudyness to go away.. I'm thinking a slam? I've read about that on here with bleach..
I am going to check the numbers now. Will keep you posted.
